As we've seen in the Islam and the Jews page, Islam is an all-encompassing system, involving religion, way of life, and legal system. Islam ultimately rejects all other sources, forms and examples of law, in favor of Sharia.
We cannot outlaw a religion outright and remain true to our Constitution. First, it would take a Constitutional Amendment to do it, with all the difficulties that would entail, including required super-majorities at every step along the way, and even a two-thirds majority among the 50 States. This is a huge undertaking, very time consuming, with no guarantee of outcome. Nevertheless, I have elsewhere recommended going that route to outlaw Islam itself in America, because I see Islam itself as so very dangerous to us all over the long term.
But there is a part of Islam that is so clearly antithetical to the very existence of our Republic and it's Constitution that it might be possible to legislate it into civil criminality, without resorting to the Amendment route. If it is possible to definitively separate Sharia - the civil and ecclesial law of Islam - from the religion of Islam itself, then it should be possible to address it in a legally restrictive way.
In other words, the practice and exercise and expression of the religion of Islam would be allowed, like any other religion; however, the imposition of Sharia law would be outlawed. The reason this is recommended involves the fact that Sharia seeks to replace all other existing law, both civil and ecclesial, including Catholic or Protestant or Jewish ecclesial law, including American civil law, and including even our Constitution itself, with the law of Sharia. Islam is not only intolerant of all other religions; it is also intolerant of all other forms of law. This is no drill.
Now, I am no lawyer, and I am no religious prelate, but I can read, and one of my favorite and most well read documents is our Constitution. And it seems to me that the most difficult area in what I am recommending here involves threading and weaving the legal needle in, out and through those parts of Islamic ecclesial law that might attempt to have any effect on any non-Islamic person. Of course, by our Constitution itself, there is no way that any religion - including Islam - should be able to impose any civil law whatsoever on anyone in America. And, of course, no strictly ecclesial law should be able to impose any civil penalties.
Our Constitution is either the supreme law of the land, or it is not.
Islam, like all other religions, should be legally restricted to legitimate ecclesial punishments, such as excommunication and so forth, for violations of ecclesial law by adherents. Islam, like all other religions, should be absolutely restricted from imposing any civil law or restriction or penalty on anyone anywhere. I submit that for Islam to try to do so here in America would clearly be un-Constitutional.
It's important to stress here the anti-Constitutional nature of Sharia. If a majority of Americans voted in Sharia law, for instance, we would recognize that as a part of the Democratic process at work in our Republic. But, by that act, a majority of Americans would have actually voted for the last time in American history. Sharia legally prohibits all other forms of law, including our Constitution. The President, all of our Congressmen, all of our Justices could all go home and retire, if they were allowed to continue living. The Mullahs and Imams would take it from there. All that eventually would be left among American citizens would be Moslems, tax-paying Dhimis, and the dead.
Isn't Marxism the same sort of thing?
Yes it is. And, during the Cold War years of antagonism between the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union and the West, it was widely recognized as a similar form of law that sought to replace all other law, everywhere. Today, major parts of the so-called Communist system have been relegated to the dust bin of history, and most people mistakenly consider it to be no real threat any more. They are wrong, of course. Many modern Leftist-Marxists who don't even know what they are still work toward their silly utopian pipe-dream involving the eventual elimination of sovereignty, which is yet another strictly un-Constitutional and even anti-Constitutional idea. They seek to dumb-down and gradually schmooze the American population into the very thing that Stalin failed to violently force us into.
It's already worked, for the most part, across the Atlantic in the new United Eurabia. Most of the inhabitants there have already yielded up huge amounts of sovereignty in return for - well, nothing in particular. Higher unemployment, higher taxes, less representation, higher costs of just about everything and so on. And, in turning away from nationhood in the first place, they have set themselves up for Islamization.
I predict that the first one to fall will be that portion of Eurabia that used to be known as France. She will fall under Islamic rule, involving conversion, Dhimitude and death, because there were not enough men there who loved her enough to carry her flag, or sing her anthem, or stand up for her. She is not considered by her occupants to be worth it. France will die by default, and her history will gradually be obliterated.
I encourage you to carefully read Bush War Doctrine Revisited and american-ideal articles as food-for-thought before going to the polls tomorrow. It's important to think long-term about important issues.
If the Dems take control, then we will have rule by such Lefties as Pelosi, who seeks absolutely open borders, and Kerry, our highest strictly self-decorated and self-adulated war hero, and Gore, our false super-hero to the un-needed rescue, and the Clintons, with the huge slimy trail of sleaze they leave behind wherever they go, and all the other rabid opponents of any war against any Islamic terror, and strict opponents of the American Ideal. These are all Utopian Global Villagers, and as such they oppose our Constitution as it is clearly written and our Republic as it stands.
Here's to our religion. Here's to our freedom. Here's to life.
Get out there and vote as if your nation depended on it.

It is unfortunate for many good people who are of the Muslim faith that radical Islam is now forcing the hand of American law but, the time has come to step in to stop crimes of Islam and other foreign cultures from committing crimes on U.S. soil in the name of religion. "Honor Killings, suspension of civil rights, denial of educational, slavery, etc.," are all anti-American against the law in the United States and we should not tolerate these things for any reason any more than we should tolerate "child molestation or force clitoral circumcision (many African cultures). Sharia law, HAS TO BE OUTLAWED IN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE IF NOT WE SHOULD PRETEND THAT OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEVELOPED LAWS DON'T EXIST AT ALL. We have an obligation to defend our constitution and Sharia law utterly disregards the constitution.

What a riot.
Let's start an Organization.
First thing we do:
If you join and try to leave we will call you an apostate and kill you. OK?
If you don't agree with our "RULEBOOK" we will kill you.
If you are a woman and you get raped by a man chances are we will kill you. ONLY MEN WILL DECIDE YOUR FATE.
Now as an American HOW CAN YOU LET SUCH AN ORGANIZATION EXIST?
IT IS UN-AMERICAN NOT to FIGHT AGAINST ISLAM.

You are sadly mistaken sir. Islam is peace. Sharia is not in the Koran, and not part of the religion. Sharia is practiced very differently in different places. The normal practice of sharia law would be perfectly compatible with law in America. Do not look only at examples of sharia from places like Saudi Arabia which do not properly represent sharia. Many people of many faiths, including your faith, improperly practice the faith. The whole faith should not be condemned or banned because of these deviations.

The word Islam means submission, which does not equate to peace in the West; perhaps it does in the East. So, to our ears, Islam is submission, not peace.
Sharia is not in the Koran, granted; however, the basics are indeed in the Koran. The Islamic imperative to make continuous war until all the world is in submission to Islam is indeed in the Koran.
Perhaps the practice of Sharia differs in different Islamic lands; however, it still not only violates but directly opposes American Constitutional law, in many ways. It directly opposes freedom from religious imposition by the state, freedom of religious exercise, freedom of speech and freedom of the press, just for openers. Whether the penalty to be imposed is death, or anything less than death, it imposes penalties for violations of law that would be un-Constitutional in America.
Any punishment whatsoever, including even a one penny fine or a suspended sentence, for such things as blaspheming Islam, blaspheming Mohammed, refusing to convert to Islam, refusing to pay the dhimi tax, converting from Islam, Christian evangelizing among Moslems, practicing another religion in public, wearing a crucifix, wearing a star of David, carrying a Bible, reading a Bible out loud in public, and a whole slew of other “violations” of Sharia would be diametrically opposed to American rights guaranteed by the American Constitution.
Sharia is indivisible from Islam, and for this reason, not long after I wrote this, I recommended outlawing Islam itself in the Outlaw Islam page. Islam is not merely a religion; it is an aggressive and invasive theocracy, a radical combination of church and state, which seeks, as its primary purpose for being, to wage war against the whole world to bring it into submission to Islamic religion and Islamic government. Through war.
It doesn’t get any more war-like and less peaceful than that. And it just doesn’t get any more anti-American and un-Constitutional than that.

The Islam Pages
With war declared on the whole non-Islamic world in the year 622 A.D., no one should have been surprised at Osama Bin Laden's declaration of war in 1966. Mohammed himself declared war on us long before we existed as a nation. To find the true source of the "radicalization" of peaceful Moslems into Jihadism, all you have to do is read the Koran. It's all right there, and there is nothing radical about it.
The Islam Pages: Setting the record straight for the non-Islamic world. The Islam Pages describe the war declared upon us all by Mohammed after the Hijrah in 622 AD.
On the necessity of using Barbarian Allies against the worst Barbarians. Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Moslem nations so fear ISIS that they will ally with despised America and Israel against it. But never forget that Barbarian Allies are still Barbarians, at the core.
Civilized Moslems: Ataturk's Turkey and the Shah's Iran had them. Once, Civilized Moslems, Educated Women and Peaceful, Attractive, Beautiful Cities predominated in lands where now we see little other than Typical Islamic Barbarity.
The Islamic Connection between ISIS, Random Terrorism and Global Jihad. It is the unseen Islamic Connection that is conquering Western Civilization: The Known Terrorist Groups, Native Born Convert Terrorists, Global Jihadists, etc. are all Moslems who read the same Koran.
The sole path to Islamic Heaven is to die a martyr in performance of Jihad. That's it. Islam assures no one else of salvation. Male martyrs get a permanent erection; female martyrs get a permanently erect penis. No kidding.
The Looming Islamic War: Sunni, ISIS, Shia, Kurds, Russia, Israel, USA? Sunni nations allying with Israel against ISIS? Excuse me? Shia nations allying with Russia? Who's on First here?
The Source of Radical Islamic Terrorism? Mohammed and the Koran. Radical Marxist Terrorism comes out of the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. Similarly, Radical Islamic Terrorism comes right straight out of the Koran.
Should we treat Islam differently than other religions? If not, why not? Doesn't Islam treat the whole non-Islamic world differently than it treats Islam?
Refuting Mohammed and his ideology of conquest masquerading as a religion. Here we refute Mohammed, who should be seen as little more than a popular fraud among pagans.
The "Palestinian Problem" is just an Evil Mask; it's really an "Islam Problem". There was no state or nation of Palestine when modern Israel was born. It was Islam, not Palestine, that attacked Israel in 1948.
The Truth about Islam, finally, in a homily at Mass. You never hear the unvarnished truth about Islam, or other evils, from Catholic clerics. Maybe that's finally changing.
American survival itself depends on getting Islam out of America. Cult forms Culture; Islam forcibly attacks all non-Islamic cultures. American national existence depends upon getting Islam out.
Recognizing, at last, the Islamic Declaration of War on Human Civilization. Congress should Recognize the long existing Islamic Declaration of War, and Declare War against ISIS and all other active Islamic Jihad organizations.
The common link between Paris, San Bernardino, 9/11, etc.: Islamic Jihad. It was common, ordinary, every day Jihad. No one was radicalized; nothing was hijacked; no one went berserk.
The argument within Islam, and about Islam, regarding the true nature of Islam. The true nature of Islam: Ron Paul, King Saud, Ali Khamenei, Comrade Obama, all have their versions.
The French Islamophobia: Was it real? Or is Islam really something to be feared? If the French Islamophobia turns out to have been warranted, what about ours?
What would War on Islam look like? Would victory even be possible? With what successful overall strategy could we wage war on an ideology?
Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.
The Islam Way Versus The Way of the Lord, and the way of Western Culture. The Islam Way stands at loggerheads with the moral, social and civil codes historically common to Judeo-Christian, Western Civilization.
How Orthodox Mainstream Islam Opposes America, and all other National Existence. Islam's Lesser Jihad seeks to (1) Convert All, or (2) Subjugate All, or (3) Kill All. Islam opposes America and American national existence.
The hard, cold, truth about the murderous nature of the religion of Islam. Islam is a religion of Peace? Excuse me? If that's true, then you must agree that Islam has a very funny way of showing it.
OK, the strictly Koranic Islamic teaching on infidels isn't TOTALLY murderous. A changing view on the Islamic teaching on infidels, and other important issues this political election season.
The Islamic Theocracy menace Vs. the U.S. Constitution First Amendment. How to attack the expanding Islamic Theocracy here while remaining true to the Constitution: SANE may have found the way.
Could we, and should we, outlaw Islamic Sharia in the US? Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion; but what of a "religious law" legal system that has a core goal of the destruction of our Constitution itself?
Can we outlaw Islam in the USA and still be a free thinking society? I say we can and should outlaw any ideology that seeks the elimination of Constitutional America.
Again, it's Israel up against what appears to be the whole pea-picking world. Weak lip-service and pretty speeches aside, America is Israel's only real ally. And, as war is imposed upon her again, even many Americans are lukewarm in their support. Why?
The latest Israeli conflict is little different from all the previous ones. The first Israeli conflict with her neighbors, and every one since then, has been a simple matter of self defense.
Faith And Reason Vs. Islam: A Pontiff on faith and reason again, and again, etc. It is and has always been faith and reason vs. Islam; Islam is unreasonable, it's faith equals submission, and it is by nature violent and war-oriented.
Islam is the enemy; the non-Islamic world just doesn’t know it yet. I keep saying that Islam is the enemy here, and you keep not wanting to hear it. But it's true.
The Ground Zero Mosque. The ground zero mosque is an Islamic slap in the face of all 9/11 victims.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
More concessions to the Palestinians? Do concessions run on a one way street? Israel is called to make more concessions to the Palestinians. It is never the other way round.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Three fatal oversights of the top conservative cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
In support of American Nationalism and American Patriotism. American Nationalism and American Patriotism have been demonized long enough.
Argument opposing Sharia law as brutal, oppressive and murderous. Opposing Sharia Law means opposing brutal domination, wife beating, child abuse and even bloody murder.
Who "radicalized" the Boston Marathon Bomber brothers? It's the Koran, Stupid. Yes, it's the Koran, stupid, and it's mainstream Islam, and there's nothing radical about either of them.
Fair warning: Beware of the Moslem Liars holding olive branches and smiling. If you have Moslem friends, you need to learn about the religious Moslem Liars
War Begets War: It's About Islam; It Always Was. Undoing Islamic Lies of "Peaceful" Moslem Propagandizers.
Rethinking War on Islam: War on "parts" of Islam, or, Unlimited War. Rethinking War on Islam may mean a perpetual state of war, for Islam's evil cannot be separated out.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
